Need a Dessert Backpacking Recipe?
Every dessert backpacking recipe featured on BackpackingChef.com has been dreamed up, tested, and retested by Chef Glenn personally. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Once you have dipped dried strawberry and banana chips into warm chocolate sauce or instant pudding on a dreamy night in Appalachia, you’ll pine for more of Chef Glenn’s desserts.
But first, here’s how to make warm chocolate sauce:
Put three or four heaping teaspoons of sweetened cocoa powder in a small pot. Add four teaspoons of water and stir. Light stove and warm sauce over low flame. Add additional water one teaspoonful at a time to achieve desired consistency, stirring continuously. Begin dipping in approximately ten minutes.
For more advanced desserts, wheedle bananas, pineapples, peaches, apples, or strawberries into a small pot over a gentle flame with compliments to the chef. Wheedle? That means to entice or influence by soft words or flattery. Just put the fruit in the pot! Throw in a little sugar, maybe some nuts, and combine with Chef Glenn’s secret ingredients.
I’ll share my secret ingredients with you because I know how much you like dessert. For starters, the secret ingredient in Pineapple Up-Side-Down Cake is dehydrated angel food cake.
